SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to connect to a server and carry out different tasks using a command line. The protocol is preferred by many experienced users, due to the fact that the data transmitted over it is encrypted, so it may not be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access can be employed for lots of things with regards to the type of website hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for example, SSH is among the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file when the hosting server allows it. In case you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH may be used for practically everything - you may install software or restart specific services such as the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is employed mainly with UNIX-like Systems, but there are clients that allow you to use the protocol if your computer is working with a different OS as well. The connection is created on TCP port 22 by default and the remote web server always listens for incoming connections on that port although a lot of service providers change it for security reasons.
